After filing a wrongful death suit against Porsche in the wake of her father’s death in a Carrera GT in 2013, Meadow Walker has settled out of court for an undisclosed fee
The daughter of the car world’s beloved Paul Walker has settled her lawsuit with Porsche out of court.
Meadow Walker had been suing Porsche over her father’s untimely death in 2013, citing known instability issues in the Carrera GT in which he was a passenger, and claiming that he was only killed because the seatbelt jammed and trapped him inside the burning car.
A US judge found last year that the latter claim was unfounded and that Porsche wasn’t at fault, but the former ‘wrongful death’ argument was ongoing. We don’t know what sort of terms or sums of money are involved, but both Porsche and Meadow Walker have requested that the suit be dropped after an agreement was reached on October 16, according to The Blast.
Last year Meadow Walker won a $10.1 million settlement with the estate of Roger Rhodas, the driver who lost control of the Carrera GT in which Walker senior was riding.
